European Union Finance Commissioner: there are no Plans to React to Bitcoin by political body

in #bitcoin3 years ago

hi friends!

Some members of European Union has been discussing the popularity of the decentralized currency bitcoin, and the EU’s political body recently added “digital currencies” to its anti-money laundering statues. However, the EU commissioner for financial affairs, Pierre Moscovici, explains in a recent interview that at this stage politicians have no plans to “react” just yet to the bitcoin phenomenon.

we all know that Bitcoin is trending worldwide, and regulators and bureaucrats from individual countries are discussing the subject quite heavily. Political bodies from the U.S., Asia, and EU have been talking about the many ways they can regulate the cryptocurrency by clamping down on the bitcoin businesses and exchanges. Politicians from the EU particularly have been concerned with terrorism financing, money laundering, and tax evasion that they believe can be tied to cryptocurrencies. News.Bitcoin.com recently reported on European legislators adding digital currencies to the Fourth Anti-Money Laundering Directive which basically considers currencies like bitcoin to be a “monetary instrument.”

Governments are usually very slow to react to new technologies, though I’m not sure if that’s good or bad for crypto.. probably good I guess 🤔
